Definitely try samples before you buy! I tried some samples of Clinique foundations but found they oxidised really badly on me. I don't know if it was because I am very oily or if it just happens to some people and not others. I also thought they were much more pink-toned than other foundations I have tried. This was actually something I was looking for because I have a cool skin tone and most things are too yellow for me but these samples were too pink even for me. I was only trying out the lightest shades though so the darker ones may well be different. Also I only tried liquid foundation so sorry if this is irrelevant, I thought it might still be of some use... I don't know if you can get samples of the powder foundations, if not I'd definitely recommend getting them to put it on you in store then go away and come back once it's had a chance to change colour if it is going to...
